Ikea kitchen

Any advice on Ikea kitchens?
What's their quality like?

We just installed one (my husband built it and installed it with a friend) and we love it! Great quality, affordable, and they were helpful in assisting us with tweaking our design.

Recently IKEA have actively upped their game in Kitchen design. They are attending home shows, they have guarantees/warranties for up to 25 years. I have done actual comparisons in shows between their boxes and draws with top end designers and found them to be probably 20% less good - which is still pretty good. They have a range of designs and are versatile. In Europe they have launched their own appliances (rather than sub-contract to other companies). Not sure of that but because I don't have experience. Faucets are good - but check they are coated brass base; and sinks are good (but stick with porcelain and ceramics rather than the resin mixes)
Finally, if you can, IKEA will come and install the kitchen for you - which is not cheap, but saves you so much hassle and if something goes wrong, they take it back and deal with it.

@kristadbr--what material is your countertop? Very pretty.

Thank you! It's quartz, the colour I believe is called blizzard white.

In the U.S. Ikea is using Whirlpool Corporation to manufacture their appliances. And your kitchen looks lovely!
